A suicide bomber on Wednesday blew himself at a check point leading to cricket stadium in Kabul. Three security force personnel were killed in the blast. 

A suicide bomber killed three people including a policeman and wounded five others after blowing himself up near a cricket stadium in the Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday, police said.

"The security forces by sacrificing have prevented the attacker from reaching the crowd (inside the stadium) and creating a catastrophe," police spokesman Basir Mujahid told AFP.  

All the players were reported to be safe. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
